Crop Science: Discovery Chemistry

We can assist in synthetic chemistry support for new agrochemical discovery programmes including:

  • Synthesis of single compounds and small arrays for screening
  • Hit to lead programmes to generate lead series and back-ups
  • Lead Optimisation programmes to provide development candidates

We have expertise in structural modification of hits to improve selectivity, systemicity, physicochemical properties and patentability

We have in-depth expertise in natural products chemistry, with a track record of simplifying complex natural products deriving novel active structures accessible by synthetic means.

Our project experts have industrial experience in interpreting in-vivo and in-vitro screening data, physicochemical profiling, freedom to operate issues, cost of goods and scale up chemistry and environmental fate issues.
